This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of Timed Systems, FORMATS 2009, held in Budapest, Hungary, September 2009. The 18 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 40 submissions. The aim of FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental and practical aspects of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from different disciplines that share interests in the modelling and analysis of timed systems.Typical topics include (but are not limited to): – Foundations and Semantics. Theoretical foundations of timed systems and languages; comparison between different models (timed automata, timed Petri nets, hybrid automata, timed process algebra, max-plus algebra, probabilistic models). – Methods and Tools. Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and software tools for analyzing timed systems and resolving temporal constraints (scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis, optimization, model checking, testing, constraint solving, etc.). – Applications. Adaptation and specialization of timing technology in application domains in which timing plays an important role (real-time software, hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling in manufacturing and telecommunication).

Time is a fascinating subject that has captured mankind's imagination from ancient times to the present. It has been, and continues to be studied across a wide range of disciplines, from the natural sciences to philosophy and logic. More than two decades ago, Pnueli in a seminal work showed the value of temporal logic in the specification and verification of computer programs. Today, a strong, vibrant international research community exists in the broad community of computer science and AI. This volume presents a number of articles from leading researchers containing state-of-the-art results in such areas as pure temporal/modal logic, specification and verification, temporal databases, temporal aspects in AI, tense and aspect in natural language, and temporal theorem proving. Earlier versions of some of the articles were given at the most recent International Conference on Temporal Logic, University of Manchester, UK. Readership: Any student of the area - postgraduate, postdoctoral or even research professor - will find the book most valuable. Computing professionals requiring state-of-the-art knowledge in the area will appreciate the volume for its leading results and its links to other relevant literature.

Motivation Modem enterprises rely on database management systems (DBMS) to collect, store and manage corporate data, which is considered a strategic corporate re source. Recently, with the proliferation of personal computers and departmen tal computing, the trend has been towards the decentralization and distribution of the computing infrastructure, with autonomy and responsibility for data now residing at the departmental and workgroup level of the organization. Users want their data delivered to their desktops, allowing them to incor porate data into their personal databases, spreadsheets, word processing doc uments, and most importantly, into their daily tasks and activities. They want to be able to share their information while retaining control over its access and distribution. There are also pressures from corporate leaders who wish to use information technology as a strategic resource in offering specialized value-added services to customers. Database technology is being used to manage the data associated with corporate processes and activities. Increasingly, the data being managed are not simply formatted tables in relational databases, but all types of ob jects, including unstructured text, images, audio, and video. Thus, the database management providers are being asked to extend the capabilities of DBMS to include object-relational models as well as full object-oriented database man agement systems.

As communication and networking (CN) become specialized and fragmented, it is easy to lose sight that many topics in CN have common threads and because of this, advances in one sub-discipline may transmit to another. The presentation of results between different sub-disciplines of CN encourages this interchange for the advan- ment of CN as a whole. Of particular interest is the hybrid approach of combining ideas from one discipline with those of another to achieve a result that is more signi- cant than the sum of the individual parts. Through this hybrid philosophy, a new or common principle can be discovered which has the propensity to propagate throu- out this multifaceted discipline. This volume comprises the selection of extended versions of papers that were p- sented in their shortened form at the 2008 International Conference on Future Gene- tion Communication and Networking (http://www. sersc. org/FGCN2008/), Inter- tional Conference on Bio-Science and Bio-Technology (http://www. sersc. org/ BSBT2008/), International Symposium on u- and e- Service, Science and Technology (http://www. sersc. org/UNESST2008/), International Symposium on Database Theory and Application (http://www. sersc. org/DTA2008/), International Symposium on Control and Automation (http://www. sersc. org/CA2008/), International Symposium on Signal Processing, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition (http://www. sersc. org/SIP2008/), International Symposium on Grid and Distributed Computing (ttp://www. sersc. org/ GDC2008/), International Symposium on Smart Home (http://www. sersc. org/SH2008/), and 2009 Advanced Science and Technology (http://www. sersc. org/AST2009/).

The systems used to process data streams and provide for the needs of stream-based applications are Data Stream Management Systems (DSMSs). This book presents a new paradigm to meet the needs of these applications, including a detailed discussion of the techniques proposed. Ii includes important aspects of a QoS-driven DSMS (Data Stream Management System) and introduces applications where a DSMS can be used and discusses needs beyond the stream processing model. It also discusses in detail the design and implementation of MavStream. This volume is primarily intended as a reference book for researchers and advanced-level students in computer science. It is also appropriate for practitioners in industry who are interested in developing applications.
